We've given up trying to catch lobsters, contenting ourselves with crabs & dogfish in the pot !!!

Loads of mackerel, some quite decent ones for the freezer at Carradale. Heading home Saturday so I hope the weather holds. The sound was like glass at 7 am .

Just come back after 4 hours out, got 5 mackerel & a dozen or so sand eels, the local guy at the side of me got 2 Bass & a bucket of sand eels. I'm fishing the same spot, same time, same method, same bait, but obviously there's summat I'm missing. Buggered if I know

nope, yer not wrong, bait of choice a nice juicy wriggling sandeel. Still blanked though. Sand eels are good eating in their own right, make for a tasty snack with a glass of cidre/biere

The Mackies were so thick and close in at Seaton Hole last night Kids were catching em with their Fishing nets!!!
......Just a bloody shame I had to hear it from my latest fishing apprentice!
Although he did drop me of a couple dozen! They had over 200 for the freezer in an hours feathering!
Silly Buggers didn't even think about what was pushing em in!..a live one lobbed out with a Big Trebble through his Snozz would have been interesting!!
